Rat Zapper® Ultra
Special, Buy 2 Get 1 FREE Offer!
If you're looking to get rid of one rat or several large rats, the Rat Zapper® Ultra will deliver years of dependable service. This electronic rat trap is humane, safe, and easy to use. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to clear step-by-step instructions. Once the target enters the Ultra, two plates deliver a total of 8,000 volts for two minutes, ensuring high kill rates. And the "no touch" feature makes disposal a truly hands-off experience.
How It Works
The Rat Zapper® Ultra is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when the rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a quick, humane 8,000 volt shock. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes ensuring a high kill rate. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes red to indicate a kill. You can "zap" 60 rats with one set of 4 “D” batteries, which makes it an effective rat trap.
Easy to Use
How easy are they to use? Very--and that's just one reason why they're so popular--just insert batteries, bait, place, turn it on and relax. First, insert 4 “D” batteries into the battery compartment. Using the entrance, bait the trap along the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, dry pet food or nuts. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. Turn on the Rat Zapper® Ultra. A green light will blink once indicating the trap is working properly.
The hands-free, "no touch, no view" disposal reduces the "yuck" factor of a common mouse and rat trap. Clean-up is easy and it can be reused indefinitely--your friends and family will want to borrow it for safe, humane rat elimination.
Safe and Sanitary
The Rat Zapper® Ultra is safe for use anywhere in the home. Built with high-quality electronics, recycled plastics, and recycled packaging, the Rat Zapper® Ultra is both effective and environmentally friendly. It is ideal for attics, garages, basements and sheds. While it's always wise to use caution around children and pets, there is no blood, mess, chemicals, or poisons with the Rat Zapper® Ultra.

The trap is 100% effective on rats. I recently purchased 3 more traps for the barn as the traps are much more effective than the cat.Date published: 2016-11-26Rated 5 out of 5 by jaysx5 from Great product We use them on a mine project and as you can imagine we have have lots of rats and mice. We have tried many rat traps, but this one is the best. Works great. Is the only rat trap we use now in the whole project and we have bought over 200 of them and will keep buying them.Date published: 2016-11-23Rated 5 out of 5 by John28 from Works Quite Well Our warehouse borders a field and the rodents are trying to find a warmer place for the winter. We started using the product several weeks ago, bating with cat food, and are normally greeted with a blinking red light in the morning (with a confirmed kill awaiting inside). Thanks for a great product.Date published: 2016-11-21Rated 5 out of 5 by JoAnn from Great size that will accommodate large rodentsmall Easy to use. I was pleasantly surprised when we just caught our first critter today. Your packaging was nice and secure; I had purchased three. Thank you. JoAnn SDate published: 2016-11-20Rated 5 out of 5 by Mrs Jones from Already working! We've lived in our house 23 years and this is the first time ever we've had a rotten issue. We used the smaller version (C battery) to catch and kill a presumed family of five in June (under our house). Yuck! Recently we suspected a problem in our garage. I decided to purchase 3 larger (D batteries) electric traps I left it off but baited it the day we received it. The next morning finding the bait gone, rebaited them and switched them on. Within 24 hours 3 large rats were caught and killed. I don't like rodents (I squirm at their rattiness) but these traps make deposal easier. I'm surprised and disgusted that we have this problem but with the help of these traps we're hoping to keep the infestation and damage to a minimum. We are waiting to see how many they catch. Yes, ICK is in order! Mrs Jones-Ellensburg, WADate published: 2016-11-13Rated 4 out of 5 by H2CO3 from Easy to setup and works Fast setup. Deployed two and had results first day. Told the neighbors and bought some too.Date published: 2016-11-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Willi e from Sure fire trap I've had these for about three months. I've had rat problems in my pole barn shop for years. In a couple of weeks the two attic rats living on top of one of the poles were gone. Three days ago I noticed a familiar odor coming from under the pump house floor. I set up one trap and have gotten one rat each of the last three nights. These traps are awesome. I use dog kibble as bait. Nice and smelly.Date published: 2016-11-07Rated 1 out of 5 by Garya from Nothing caught yet I have had them for 1 week, and nothing yet, two of the three were blinking once each as if they had one, but nothing in the trap. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Bait may be the issue, suggestions welcomed.Date published: 2016-11-07
Can this be used in a greenhouse? Your answers to related questions say indoor use only. Please explain in more detail.Our electronic traps are rated for indoor use only. A greenhouse would be acceptable as long as there is no water that would be within range of the unit. Exposure to the elements is why they cannot be used outdoors.Date published: 2016-12-06

what is the best way to clean the plate of hair & urine?Be sure to turn off the trap and remove the batteries before cleaning. We recommend using a towel with water and unscented dish soap to clean the plates. We also suggest soaking the base of the trap in a tub with 1" of water and unscented dish soap. For this method, be sure not to get the top of the trap wet where the electrical components are. Make sure the trap is completely dry before turning back on.Date published: 2016-11-11

Rat Zapper® Ultra Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. Rats are wary critters and they’ll initially avoid anything new in their environment. Good news is we’re smarter than they are! It may take a few days or nights for the first rat to enter your trap but be patient!
Q: How do I bait the trap?/What should I use to bait the trap?
A: To bait the Rat Zapper®, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along or on the back wall of the trap. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. We’ve carefully researched dry pet food and found it an excellent lure. Other dried baits (nuts, dehydrated fruit, etc.) can also work well. Goopy Bait Note: Please don’t place moist or goopy bait in your Rat Zapper® unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Rat Zapper®. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
Q: What type of batteries do I need?
A: The Rat Zapper® Ultra requires 4 “D” alkaline batteries which will provide approximately two years of stand-by power. Use high quality alkaline batteries to ensure the best results.
Q: What may affect the effectiveness of an electronic trap?
A: To ensure that your trap works when it is supposed to, keep the metal plates clean so the trap won’t trigger at the wrong time.
- Don’t over-bait, as excess food could drop onto the plates and activate the trap, after which any rodent may safely enter to remove the food.
- Make sure that the plates are clear of any debris, especially urine or hair from a recent kill that may interfere with the unit’s proper function. Remember, both plates need to be clean so that the electric circuit is made complete by the rodent stepping on both.
Q:What does it mean when the light blinks green? Red?
A: When you turn on the trap, the green light will stay on for 2 seconds to confirm the trap is on. Then the light is supposed to go off. The green light will also blink to indicate a successful kill; however, in order to conserve battery, it only flashes about every 7 seconds. A blinking red light indicates that the batteries are running low and will need to be replaced.
